Running out of month.

As I age, I find that January seems to fly by faster each year.  I always look forward to the new year and January is usually a month of "new beginnings" for me.   Instead, I feel like I am playing catch up from December and I have been so busy at work that I have not posted in 5 days.  I must not let the current of life carry me downstream to fast...at least not without being part of the view. So, first let me wish "Blessings" to everyone who stops by and to those they care about.  Some happy news for me.  I have wanted to rent one of the glass cases at Queen of Hearts since September of last year and have been on a waiting list for a particular corner case.  Just learned that the case is mine so I'm like a manic mermaid pricing items to display in this wonderful case. Pictures will be taken over the weekend and showcased in a future posting. 

Had a lovely Saturday afternoon  with gal pals.  We got together at our local Borders and set up our laptops and I helped them set up their blogs.  Amazing what a little coffee and good friendships produce.  Please stop by and visit A Whimsical Chick



 These are terrific women, multi talented, and new to blogging and they are anxious to meet this wonderful community that I so enjoy and talk about often.

Next on my "hit list" is to transfer all inventory data to a new excel setup.  I have been using Access for my inventory for years but have found that it is more program then what I ended up using so I have revamped the way I want to use the inventory data and wanted to transfer it all over to the new excel format I created.  Spent the last 5 days creating and moving the data and it is finally complete. I LOVE IT.  (I know, I know, I can get excited about the simplest of things).  This will make my inventory management much easier and I like how quickly the data changes with the quick click of an assigned filter.  Magic is what it is...Magic.

Tackled the garage this weekend. Although this is one messy garage, this is NOT mine. 


  Mostly, I just needed to rearrange all of the holiday items that I brought back from my booth.  I like to put it in order so next year I can find it quickly.  With freezing temps the last few weeks, it was just too cold to get in there but Monday was a sunny day so I got busy.

Gotta get back to the pool too. I'm missing my water aerobics and a mermaid out of water is never truly happy.



Speaking of mermaids, how cool is this Art Deco lamp.  I would love to have this marvelous piece.  Crazy mad about the blue stained glass that leaves the color of tropical waters on the ladies of the sea.



Enough of my rambling and on with my plans for this evening.   I will price more items for the glass case at Queen of Hearts, watch Project Runway and enjoy a hot cup of tea with my honey sitting next to me, life is good.  Wishing everyone a delightful day. Sea Witch

i agree, january doesn't feel the same to me either. instead of feeling fresh and new, i think i just shlogged all of last year along on the bottom of my shoes or something....
that feeling would probably go away if i had that beautiful lamp lighting the way....

Ms. Mermaid, Thanks you for the nice write up on Piggy and I. You were a very big help but I believe I enjoyed the talking and the coffee more. It was nice to see you at the Queen even if it was for a second. Have a Great weekend coming up.

January began so well and is now ending with a fizzle for me ..hopefully February will be better!

Hey Dari- you are too much! We may have to work on inventory spread sheets at our next get together...you sooo don't want to know what my inventory methods are. I HAD NO CLUE that I had an iota of artistic talent in my entire body and am still shocked that i'm painting these with my own little hooves. I can't wait to visit you at Queen of Hearts.
Hogs & Kisses,
Piggy

Hey Witch, I haven't hollered at you in awhile. I haven't had time to do much but make and keep doctor's appts. It's either my mom, my husband, or moi! What's a girl to do? I thought this year would be a better one--I keep telling myself it WILL get better. Oh well...

You are such a sweet friend to help others with their problems when you have a full plate yourself. I am happy to hear that you have found a better inventory method AND got a glass case at the Queen of Hearts. I know you will do well!!

I love that mermaid lamp! Have a great weekend!

Thank you for stopping by - Flagstaff must be burried under a few feet of snow after this storm and I bet it's beautiful up there. Every gulch, wash and ditch in the state has been running with all the rain. Keep us posted with pictures of you glass case - sounds like the kind of work that's fun!

Hi Sea Witch...oh I can't wait to see your new showcase, and what you put in it. Love, love the art deco lamp, it is just gorgeous. And I must tell you I am an avid Project Runway fan. I just love it. It is my favorite weekly show. I'll try to drop in on your girlfriends very soon. Nice to "see' you, hugs, Kathleen
